Two-Hour Zero Slump Loss, High-Strength Pumpable Concrete—An Application Case in Dam Structure



About 700 000 m3 of pumpable concrete, which was produced by a high-range water-reducing admixture (HRWRA) and relatively low-strength cement, was used in the Xiao Lang Di water conservancy project. The concrete achieved a 28-day compressive strength as high as 90 MPa, a slump of 20 cm, and almost no slump loss in 2.5 h after mixing, as well as good freeze-thaw durability. The paper describes in detail the mix proportions, the method to control slump loss, and the related mechanical properties.
